Are there any issues with loading 270wsm? Looking at loading a medium hunting load with 150gr bullets. Any bullet recommendations for deer and hogs? How many times do you think you can load the brass?

From a strictly on game performance I would recommend a partition or accubond or similar style bullet.

Should be pretty straight forward loading, only thing I have heard of issue wise with loading heavier for cal bullets is having to seat them deeply to fit in the magazine, but I think you should be fine.

If you push max velocities case life wont be long if you run a mid range load they could last a long time.

Brass can be hard to find from time to time it think, but certainly doable.

WSM brass is thick and seems to last for more reloadings but I've had problems with necks splitting. Depending on how fast you load it and if you FL resize or not the brass can probably do 10-25 reloads.

Looked pretty straight forward just checking to see if any issues.

For deer and hogs, I'd start with the 150 gr Hornady.

I have one and have had great success with it. Cup and core bullets make quite a mess at wsm speeds. I have had the best luck with accubonds. I also really like the etips/barnes with it but people either seem to love them or hate them.

I load Barnes TTSX 130 gr out of mine with no issues.. I've killed Axis over 200 pounds well over 300 yds and several tank sized hogs - folds them like a book.

Cousin shoots one with factory cup and core soft points. Has only made neck/head shots so far, but I imagine that combo could leave a pretty huge wound channel in a deer.

The only bullet I have tried in the 270WSM is the 140gr accubond, shoots great and works on critters
